  • graduation gift

    this is a graduation gift I made for a friend that is graduating Navy boot camp friday, I will be heading out to the Chicago area to see the ceremony and givce him his gift. It is made from 1/4 in poplar with a luane backer board. Stained with golden oak. I used a piece of rope around it as a frame as well as to try to make it resemble a life preserver, maybe failed there but I think it still came out looking pretty good.

    Nice work Wayne!

    That is a mighty fine ship you scrolled there.

    The recipient should like that gift, and the rope adds a nice finishing touch.

    Congrats on a job well done.

    Regards,

              Nice work. I truly admire all the projects that you share and I truly envy the fact that you finish what you start. What is your secret?

              Thanks, Kim. I'll show that to my husband but since he has 2 surgeries coming up I doubt that will be on his to do list. The place we buy wood from air dries the wood for a year, than finishes with kiln drying....

              will8989, We made a drying kiln out of a plan we saw on youtube. We took a 6-Tier Commercial Grade Heavy Duty Steel Wire Shelving Unit that we got at lowes, wrapped it in 1 inch foam insulation board and put two heat bulbs in the bottom, we have holes at the top and bottom to let the moisture out.
